Even though i wasn't in the bus because the people at office when I 📞 claim that the bus was already passed by but the weirdest is that I was at Shell from 7:30 pm and also guys at petrol station they intercape never on time people do complain. I advise more effort has to be put it on to make things work correctly

I have no issues with the staff but my bus was consistently late and arrived in cape town 2 hours late and then took 30 more minutes to get my bag off.

Intercape arrived late on both occasions. That chairs were all broken as they automatically leaned backward and would not be seated upright. The bus broke down delayed the trip by another three hours which is a sign of poor servicing, especially over the festive season. However, the staff all remained friendly and I had a pleasant experience from them - possibly the only redeeming factor. I would also like to be informed which stop is which via announcement which was not consistent.
